ProtectedApps

Extra protection for your apps.

With this app you could protect app with a password, PIN or pattern. The Android lockscreen is used for that. The protection could not be removed with a simple long press on back-button, like with most other apps. You could even protect not straight startable apps eg the package-installer.
Donation: You could select a unlimited count of apps.

TouchWiz users (most Samsung devices): Please enable in settings the compat mode BEFORE reboot the device with enabled module!

Features:
All features are supported since Android 4.2. With older versions not supported options are hidden in the settings.

  • Differen observation modes: First start of apps or while using it
  • Duration of unlock configurable
  • Autmatic locking could be switched off.
  • Notification options: Always, while unlockedImmer, never
  • Duration of unlock could be configured
  • Pre-lock slider could be disabled

Examples:

  • Play Store (install/remove apps)
  • Xposed Installer (enable/disable modules)
  • Package-Installer (install/remove apks)
